The Music Networks Association (IASPM Hungary) presents:
The Sound of the Coolest Little Capital: The Wellington Scene
(Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand)
As the first lecture in the Music Networks Seminar (MNS) academic lecture series.
Time and Date: 24 October 2013 18.30
Location: Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME) E Building, Room 604 (Egry J. u. 1.)
Abstract: Three years ago, Lonely Planet Travel Guide nominated Wellington, New Zealand, the "coolest little capital." The way in which the city's various scenes have been mobilised in the marketing of the city says a great deal about how the production of urban space, cultural policy and urban development have played out in Wellington over the last twenty years. This paper will explore some of these issues in relation to the city's culinary spaces, with particular reference to its current music scene, entrepreneurialism, DIY culture and neoliberalism as they are manifest in music making.
The language of the lecture will be English (no translation services provided).

He was a post-Doctoral Fellow at both Humboldt University in Berlin and the Advanced Cultural Studies Institute of Sweden (ACSIS), Linköping University.

About the lecture series: MNS is an interdisciplinary lecture series organized by Music Networks Association, focusing on issues at the intersection of popular music studies, society, culture and technology.
About Music Networks Association: MNA (Zenei Hálózatok Egyesület) is the umbrella association of the Hungarian branch of the International Association for the Study of Popular Music (IASPM) launched in 2010. The association attempts to connect not only the academic community in Hungary, but also music critics, scene members and journalists affiliated with research on musicological, sociological, philosophical and various other aspects of all forms of popular music. Research activities backed by the association focus on recent developments concerning the changing role of popular music within culture, namely: online music communities, extreme music scenes, music piracy, and the transformation of the traditional music industry. The MNA is about to launch the first peer reviewed open access popular music studies journal in the region, and so far has organized a conference, several popular lecture series, and published edited volumes.
